Amazing Photographic Technology

A photographer used technology called Gigapan to make a massive 1,400 megapixel photograph (yes, you read the right… over 1.4 billion pixels) of the inaugural audience at the moment O’bama gave his address.  This means that you can zoom in on any point in the crowd and see clear faces — President Bush, Justice Thomas, and Jamie Lee Curtiss.  This is the sort of technology that the CIA always seems to have in spy movies.

You can check it out for yourself here.

(I guarantee you won’t find me anywhere in the photograph… Of course, I didn’t even attend any of my own college graduation ceremonies)

Note: another fine contribution from Joe Knecht
